Abstract: A complete proof of the trace theorem of Sobolev spaces on Lipschitz domains has not appeared in the literature yet. The purpose of this paper is to give a complete proof of the trace theorem of Sobolev spaces on Lipschitz domains by taking advantage of the intrinsic norm on . It is proved that the trace operator is a linear bounded operator from to for .
